[/quote]is it possible that the brake calipers are not working properly? There is an excessive amount of brake dust onthe wheel making the noise[/quote]
Not sure exactly what you're asking.
Are you asking if the calipers are over using the brakes which is creating an excess of brake dust that is some how causing your pinion to make noise?
Or are you asking if the brake dust alone is the issue?
If you think your calipers are not working properly, I'm pretty sure you'd notice your brakes grabbing when applied.
It is plausible that the brake dust could have soemthign to do with it though, you said you went through high water and that is when the issue arose.
I JUST remembered what I did, I had gone through high water myself and that is when the issue started for me too. I sprayed everything systematically until I sprayed my shock absorber piston rod. That stopped the noise.
I have the sport package where my shocks are actually upside down. Try greasing or spraying that piston rod with WD-40 and see if that stops the noise.
If it doesn't, you could always clean out the brake resevoir, grease your break pads, and check your fittings.
Let me know if that helps, good luck bro.
